TV social games network, PlayJam, is to launch an app on Panasonic's Viera Connect-enabled HDTVs.
PlayJam is engaged with a number of 3rd party games developers to offer a mix of in-house and brand titles available through the PlayJam Games channel app. Features made available to game-developers include cross-network tournaments, leader-boards, real-time mass participation events, virtual currencies and recommendations.
PlayJam's Commercial Director, Anthony Johnson, said: "We are delighted to be working in partnership with Panasonic to bring our games service into the heart of the connected living room. Connected TV is the next big platform for games and as such we have moved quickly to establish a coherent route to market for developers looking to enhance, monetize and distribute their content via this rapidly growing medium."
Merwan Mereby, Vice President of the Panasonic Corporation of North America added: "The launch of PlayJam Games Channel on Viera Connect is a great example of the amazing, cutting-edge interactive
content and connectivity Panasonic is delivering to consumers that will take their
home entertainment to a whole new level."
The PlayJam Games channel app will launch on Panasonic's Viera Connect-enabled HDTVs worldwide in November 2011.
